My name is pronounced "Weh-Gyeh-in", not "Ogg-Yein", "Egg-yeen" or "Oxygen", all mispronunciarions I Have had before.

Other acceptable pronunciations include "Weh-g'yen", "Weg-yen", and "Wagon".
Is this a good time to mention that when I recently saw this throat medicine "Octeangin" it reminded me of you?

Also this explains why there was "wagon" on a sign in the minecraft game.

Edited to add:
So "wagon" is one of the fallback pronunciations,
meanwhile, I most often don't remember to pronounce "wagon" correctly.

Another begrudgingly acceptable pronunciation would be "Wee-jee-en". You can thank Esther for that one XD

It's that time of year again where we have a ton of new members and I have to explain my strange username.

My name is pronounced "Weh-Gyeh-in", not "Ogg-Yein", "Egg-yeen" or "Oxygen", all mispronunciarions I Have had before.

Other acceptable pronunciations include "Weh-g'yen", "Weg-yen", and "Wagon".

Only Heaven knows why I didn't go with something simple like "Steve" or "Bob" or "\\Xx_D4rknezz-Rizing4198_xX//"
I say Oh-EE-Gee-En. Is that ok

I WAS LOOKING AT OLD UNLISTED VIDEOS, AND I FOUND ONE FROM 2017, ANDTHE AUDIO MIXING IS AWFUL, AND THE TRANSITIONS ARE AWFUL, BUT THE THING THAT'S MAKING ME CRINGE IS MY VOICE. IT WAS SO WEIRD AND HIGH AND MY ACCENT WASN'T AUSTRALIAN OR AMERICAN, IT WAS THIS UNCOMFORTABLE MIX OF BOTH AND I'M SHRIVELLING INTO A HUSK OF SHAME.

(I can't share it because it features my real name and old highschool, just trust me that you don't wanna see it)

I gotta re-record my accent tag at some point. I'm ashamed of how I used to pronounce "pecan".

Your voice is and always has been lovely. I love the mix of Australian and American accent

So just got convinced to spend $200 on freakin clip studio pro...Do I regret this? I dunno yet. I just got it. But I'm going to use it and learn it for the next 3 years at least. Inktober is honestly a great way for me to do simple doodles. I watched a tutorial and started Drawing...then @Oegyein appeared in it and suddenly I had my first Inktober entry...Did not go the way I was expecting this to go. Went all wacky but def put some effort in. ABSTRACT ART BABYYY. Going full digital for Inktober, BUT I will do greyscale :) probably. We will see how this month goes.


Inktober 2023, Day 1: Dream

It's been @Oegyein s dream to be a US citizen for a while now. Not sure if the whole cowboy obsession tipped anyone off. The photo is him finally getting that citizenship card he's always wanted. The 'legal alien' would be the green card. And the lady would just be a random US gov person who did the signing off

Haven't you ever heard of "the long arm of the law"? ;)

Last year I made @Avidro start watching Markiplier's FNAF playthroughs (all of them) with me, and we made it to like the 5th game before October ended and we stopped. But it's October again. And the FNAF movie comes out near Halloween. Hmmmmmmmmm
